    One way to find out! Welcome to the board. The saltiness will increase with marinating time.

    Yep by itself certainly imparts flavor...however for advice you need to share the weight of meat and your time scale?

  7. Soy sauce is a little salty, may want to dilute it and mix with a few other things

    There are many different soy sauces.   At a quick glance, I have at least eight.  Suggest you start out with one of these and adjust if needed from there.  Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce (not the soy sauce) or a less salty Aloha Shoyu soy sauce.  If you think you may like a sweet or flavored sauce, visit an oriental market and they may help you.  Suggest you buy in 1 gallon or half gallon containers to save a few bucks.

    Hope this helps.

  9. Pure Soy can definitely be salty.......... here is a sauce we like at our house on a variety of things, gives it that "asian" taste.  

    1/2c hoisin sauce

    2T sriracha

    2T soy sauce

    1T minced garlic

    1T powder ginger

    1T rice vinegar

    Goes real good with these ........

    Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas

    1 Tbsp. Peanut Oil

    1 lb. Sugar Snap Peas

    2 tsp Minced Ginger

    2 Garlic Cloves, minced

    1 tsp Toasted Sesame Oil

    1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce


    Heat peanut oil in a large skillet to high.  Cook peas stirring constantly until they are glossy bright green and begin to show a few brown spots.  When peas are almost done, stir in ginger and garlic, then cook another minute or two.  Turn off heat, remove peas to a platter.  Drizzle with toasted sesame oil and soy sauce.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
